    This position makes me sad for the state of higher education: a doctorate is required but the appointment is only at the rank of instructor, plus it's only .75 salary AND is a 12 month position! No offense to USF but I sincerely hope that qualified academics can do better than this stingy job that fails to recognize the qualifications that the university is demanding.
